Ok so an update: I lost four of the seven shrimp. The other three seem to be doing alright. The liquid fertilizer may have played a part, I only saw one exoskeleton floating around, but that doesn't mean any others weren't eaten.
As far as diet, I have switched over to New Life Spectrum food, and everyone in my tank goes bananas for it, including the shrimp. Should I supplement the diet with something that might assist in shell formation? I know snails need calcium, but I'm not too sure about shrimp.
My tank is pretty stable with a pH around 7.8. I know this is pretty basic for the fish I like to keep, but they seem to have adapted ok. Is this too basic for shrimp?
Thanks for the help!
